Realistic Modern Single Season Twist League 1994-2013
I've always loved single season twist leagues. I've had thoughts about this league in the back of my mind awhile, so I'm giving it a whirll. Hope it fills!
In this league, you will select one team from one season. You will build your 25 man roster using any player that appeared in one game for your selected team that year. Use baseball-reference.com for determining player eligibility. Eligible player season will be from that year +/- 1 year. So if you choose the 1995 Indians, you can use either the 1994,1995, or 1996 Omar Vizquel. Teams that are selected from the 1994 season will use 1993-1995 and selected teams from 2013 will use 2011-2013. You will also build a minor league of any 6 players/4 pitches from your 3 season window. ( Any team). Also, after the 1st simulated game, your cap will be bumped up by 5 mil which can be used for ONE waiver wire claim of any player from 1994-2013. Trade are unlimited and encouraged. The intent behind this league was to make something a little more realistic, modern, and use players not commonly used in LIVE leagues.
